Power Stone

No items found.

Power Stone (2019) is a 297 x 420mm graphite, ink, acrylic ink and marker drawing in a frame. It is part of the Trans Neolithic Future series (2019-2021). These playful and visually enticing works can be seen as a personal interpretation of the various theories put forwards by archaeologists who propose that early European/Mediterranean societies were ruled by matriarchal systems. In stark contrast to the grey hues of the stones in these works, Griepink chose bright green lichen as the herald of nature's wild wisdom. A viridescent film sprawling over the voluptuous and monumental stone configurations. We see lichens, a multi-species composed of a fungus living in a symbiotic relationship with an alga or cyanobacterium (or both in some instances). Please see the full series for more information.

  • Power Stone was presented at Te Whare Toi, Wellington (NZ), Garage Rotterdam (NL), Museum IJsselstein (NL), IMPAKT Utrecht (NL), MU Hybrid Art House (NL), Dat Bolwerck Zutphen (NL), Vishal Haalem (NL), Rupert Vilnius (LT) and Technical Museum of East Iceland in Seyðisfjörður (IS).
